their courses of study and fulfilled other requirements mandated by the New York State
Board of Regents.
    Glen Cove High School, in concurrence with the mission of the Glen Cove School
District, offers students the opportunity for an effective educational experience in a safe,
comfortable and productive environment. In addition, the mission is to instill in students
independence, civic consciousness, social awareness, responsibility and the mastery of
defined skills and knowledge, enabling them to accept society's challenges in our ever-
changing world.
    In order to accomplish our mission, Glen Cove High School adheres to the following
educational philosophy:

• Every student is an individual; thus, the schedule is structured so they can choose from a
  wide variety of courses to meet both present and future needs.

• Students are grouped in a manner that facilitates achievement and the development of
  positive self-esteem. All course levels are offered and each student is encouraged to achieve
  to his/her full potential.

• The school encourages parental involvement and participation in school activities.

• The school administrators, faculty, parents, and students share in the decision-making
  process that gives direction to school improvement efforts. These outcomes are monitored
  and evaluated.

• The school provides instructional programs for all students including at-risk, gifted, and
  students with special needs.

• The school provides educational programs and opportunities to celebrate the cultural
  differences and contributions of our diverse student body and community.

• A wide spectrum of extra and cocurricular activities are available after school to assure a
  well-rounded educational experience.

• Through a variety of curricular and extracurricular approaches, Glen Cove High School
  provides college and career exploration activities for students and their families.

   The Glen Cove City School District affirms that no person shall be excluded from
participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any
educational program or activity on the basis of sex, national origin, race or handicap.

                 PROMOTIONAL GATEWAYS AND GRADING

                                 MINIMUM CLASS LOADS
    Ninth, 10th and 11th grade students must carry a full schedule of classes. Twelfth grade students must
carry a minimum of six credits, including physical education. No student may drop a course without
written permission from his/her parent or guardian, teacher, counselor, coordinator, and principal. Seniors
may not drop any course after college applications have been mailed out.

 CRITERIA FOR MAINTAINING PLACEMENT IN & GAINING ADMISSION TO
           HONORS & ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) COURSES
    In order for a student to advance from a Regents to an Honors level course or from an
Honors to an AP level, he/she must earn an overall average of 90 in the prerequisite course. For
a student to maintain previous placement in an Honors or AP level, he/she must have an overall
average of 85 in that course.
                     ACADEMIC INTERVENTION SERVICES
    Services will be provided for students in those courses which end in a Regents exam required for
graduation.

                            ADD/DROP COURSE POLICY
    All students intending to add a course or drop a course once the school year has begun need to be
aware of the following: No half-year course will be added or dropped after the first 10 days of school.
No full-year course will be added or dropped after the first mid-marking period progress report. If a
drop occurs after the above-referenced time, a “WP” (withdraw pass) or a “WF” (withdraw fail) will
appear on the transcript, depending upon the student’s current average in the course. No student may
drop a course without written permission from his/her guardian, teacher, coordinator, counselor, and
principal.
                                           GRADES
    A summer assignment/project as assigned by the respective teacher must be completed and
submitted as per the due date assigned by the teacher. Passing grades range from 65 to 100. Quarterly
grades of 64 and below denote failure. Placement on the honor roll is achieved by having a
cumulative average of 85 and no failure in any course. Report cards are issued four times a year.
Progress reports are issued 5 weeks prior to each report card.
    Students may retake Regents exams to improve a prior score. The new exam score, however, will
NOT be used in determining grade, grade point average or class rank standing.
    The district has adopted a comprehensive attendance policy, which can easily be summarized by
the following provisions: A student may receive an “NC” or No Credit for a course due to excessive
unexcused absences. Any student who is unexcused for ten (10) or more days in a full-year course and
any student who is unexcused for five (5) or more days in a half-year course will receive an NC for
that course. The policy can be found in its entirety on the district website or in the main office of the
high school.
    Students who participate in out of district and online courses, please refer to Board Policy #7223
regarding grading policy and calculating grade point average.

Class Rank and Grade Weighting - Class rank is determined at the end of the junior year. A
weighted grade point average, calculated at the end of the 11th grade, is recorded on the transcript.
Courses are weighted as follows: 1.12 for Advanced Placement courses, 1.07 for Honors courses, and
1.00 for Regents and local-level courses. See policy 7223.

Note: Computation of rank is based on the weighted grade point average and the ranking of each
class can be revised/eliminated as per the Board of Education.

                           ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY POLICY
                                 Extraclassroom Activities
The Board of Education considers extracurricular activities to be a valuable part of the
school and shall support these activities within the financial means of the District.

                               Eligibility for Participation
In order to improve learning and promote increased academic success, the Board of
Education implements the following policy concerning Extracurricular and Interscholastic
Eligibility:

a)         If a student fails three (3) or more classes for the quarter, the student will be
           ineligible to participate for the next quarter in extracurricular activities for the
           duration of that entire quarter. The ineligibility will carry over from the fourth
           quarter to the first quarter of the following school year unless the student passes
           the classes that had been failed during summer school.

b)         If a student fails two (2) classes, he/she will be placed on probation for one (1)
           quarter. The semester will end immediately after the midterm and final grades are
           recorded. If a student fails two (2) classes during the fourth quarter, he/she will
           remain on probation for the duration of the 1st quarter of the new school year.
           Should the student pass the course that he/she had failed in summer school, the
           student will be removed from probation. To remain eligible, it is the student’s
           responsibility to attend required extra help sessions and make up all missed
           assignments, tests, class work, etc. A bi-weekly progress report which is designed
           to monitor a student’s attendance at extra help sessions will be mandatory.
           Failure to do so will result in a student’s suspension or removal from the activity
           for one week.
           If a student fails to show continued incremental academic improvement and
           effort, according to the teacher, then he/she will be deemed ineligible. The
           Academic Eligibility Committee will be responsible for the determination.

c)         All entering 9th graders will have their final 8th grade report cards evaluated by
           the High School Eligibility Committee. Their eligibility will be based upon the
           same eligibility requirements that all other high school students must meet (see a
           and b above). However, if the entering 9th grader is deemed ineligible during the
           1st quarter he/she should be placed on probation.

d)         A student, who has an unexcused absence, or is out for reasons of illness, or is
           suspended from school, cannot participate in any extracurricular activity during
           the school day.

e)         A student cannot participate in any extracurricular activities for that school day if
           he/she arrives after 9 a.m. without a legal excuse.

f)         An appeals committee consisting of the principal or his designee, athletic director,
           coach of the sport/advisor of the activity, guidance counselor and one content area
           teacher will meet on a regular basis to review student status and academic
           eligibility.

                 GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING CENTER

   The activities of the Guidance and Counseling Center are designed to help students
develop and acquire the skills, abilities, knowledge and attitudes necessary to plan for their
future. Through individual and group conferences, counselors assist students on selecting
the best possible school program, and monitor their academic progress.
   An organized testing program, educational workshops for parents and students, and
career activities designed to help students learn more about themselves are provided at each
grade level. In addition, the counseling staff works with individual students and parents to
help resolve school-related or personal difficulties in an atmosphere of support and
confidentiality. Referrals are made to appropriate community resources when it is necessary.
   Students are informed about scholarship opportunities, field trips, career speakers, and
special programs through bulletins, guidance newsletters, P.A. announcements and group
presentations in classes. The school calendar provides an overall view of guidance and
student activities throughout the school year.

year must consult his/her counselor. A request in writing must be made to the principal.

                                   COMPUTER SCIENCE
    Glen Cove High School is among the technology leaders of Long Island schools. Our students
are exposed at all levels to computer technology as a tool in all aspects of learning. The high
school Computer Science department offers students the opportunity to learn current languages
of the computer itself. Challenging courses build skills needed to conduct effective research,
organize, process and access information, and use the appropriate software program to manage
and present that information. These computer skills are essential for college study and research
and for most entry-level jobs in programming in corporate and small businesses.

                LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH (LOTE)
   The world is becoming smaller, and communication among people is constantly
increasing in importance. The study of languages should then also increase if we are to
fulfill the communication needs of the future. The State mandates underscore the need for
the study of Languages Other Than English (LOTE). The knowledge of world languages
has many rewards in the fields of international business, law, medicine, politics, and travel.
The study of languages also leads to a better comprehension of the English language and

    One of the greatest predictors of success in college is success in high school mathematics. It is the
goal of the mathematics department of the Glen Cove School District to offer a wide variety of course
offerings ensuring that all students experience success. We offer programs that follow New York State
guidelines and prepare students to meet the requirements of the new Common Core Standards, as well
as for future study.
    The New York State Education Department and the Board of Regents mandate assessments and
graduation requirements in mathematics for all students in (i) Algebra, (ii) Geometry and (iii) Algebra
2/Trigonometry. All students must pass the Algebra Regents exam and earn three credits in
mathematics, among the other requirements for a High School Diploma. For a Regents Diploma with
Advanced Designation, students must additionally pass the Geometry and the Algebra 2/Trigonometry
Regents exams. Students should be aware that many courses require a prerequisite. In addition, all
Honors and Advanced Placement math courses require a minimum grade for admission as well as a
minimum grade to remain in the course. (See page 5 for more information.)

711ADV ADVANCED VISUAL ARTS (H) - 1 Credit. Prerequisite: Must have taken
Studio in Art or Fashion Design/Illustration or Media Art. This course offers the art
major, or other interested art students, the opportunity to refine and build upon skills
acquired in any of the following basic courses: Drawing and Painting, Fashion and Design
Illustration and Creative Crafts. Students who have completed one of the above courses
may work for 20 weeks in that area. Students who have completed two of the above courses
may work for 20 weeks in one area or 10 weeks in each area. Each student in Advanced
Visual Art will work independently. At the beginning of the course the student will specify
the area, or areas, of study he/she wishes to pursue. A written outline of that course of
study, goals and objectives must be presented to the instructor. Work will be graded at
intervals as it progresses, and a final project grade will be given. Grades 10, 11 and 12 only.

712 ADVANCED PLACEMENT STUDIO ART - 1 Credit. Prerequisite: Studio in Art,
Drawing and Painting, and Advanced Visual Arts. This Advanced Placement course is
designed for students who are interested in the practical experience of art. AP Studio Art is
not based on a written examination; however, students submit portfolios for evaluation at
the end of the school year. The portfolio will show a basic three-section structure, which
requires the student to show a fundamental competence and usage of understanding in
visual concerns and methods. The student should demonstrate a depth of investigation and
process of discovery and an understanding of visual principles and material techniques.

574 PHOTOGRAPHY I - .5 Credit. This is an introductory course in photography
where students use digital point-and-shoot cameras and Adobe Photoshop to create and
edit images. Students will learn the basics of composition and other techniques that make
a strong photograph, all of the functions of the camera, basic and intermediate
Photoshop skills, and the evolution of photography and photographers from traditional
times to today. Photography is a great chance for students who love taking pictures to
develop their interest, and students who love working on the computer to learn
professional editing software. Cameras are supplied by the school.

720 PHOTOGRAPHY II - .5 Credit. Prerequisite: Photography I. This course builds
on the skills previously learned in Photo I and introduces students to the DSLR (the
“big” cameras) which will allow them to better control their images and experiment with
time exposures and depth of field. Students will learn intermediate and advanced Adobe
Photoshop skills, studio lighting techniques, modern photography styles, the role of the
photographer in the modern world, and new terms and information about digital
imaging.

721 ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHY (H) - 1 Credit. Prerequisite: A 90 or above average
in Photo II. This course is for students who have a strong interest in photography. In this
course students will develop a breadth of work that reflects their own sense of style, subject
matter, creativity, and desire to experiment. Students will explore photography and
photographers as they exist in today’s modern world on a more personal and realistic level. It
will be an environment of higher-level creativity, freedom, and discussion for those who want
to go beyond the given projects and instruction in Photo I and Photo II.
